CNN's Ashleigh Banfield: Trump Lawyer's Benghazi Murder Allegation Against Clinton Is “Offensive” and “Libel”

From the June 28 edition of CNN's Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield:

ASHLEIGH BANFIELD (HOST): Let me do a complete about-face here, and Nia-Malika, I want you to take a look at a tweet that just came out from Michael Cohen, who was one of the chief advisers for Donald Trump. He's worked within the Trump organization, he said this: “The NBC Wall Street Journal poll has @realDonald Trump beating crooked Hillary on honesty and national security. This picture says it all.” And If you read what the meme says, and I'll quote the meme here: "I presided over $6 billion lost at the State Department, sold uranium to the Russians through my faux charity, illegally deleted public records and murdered an ambassador. This show is called Legal View because we know a thing or two about the law, and Michael Cohen is a lawyer. That there is libel. To suggest that a woman murdered an ambassador, look, it's not as though Hillary Clinton's team is about to go and launch some litigation on this, but that's pretty strident stuff.


BANFIELD: Let's just be really frank here, people. Don't call someone a murderer of an ambassador, for God's sake. It's offensive to Americans who really want the truth and what's going on in politics. Please, give us a break.
